The night before ...
This show is understandably overlooked due to the epic show with Branford the next night. I was fortunate enough to see both shows and I remember thinking this show was pretty lame. There were no extended jams, no X factor and I wasn't a big fan of songs like Easy to Love You, Queen Jane or Foolish Heart at the time.
After listening to this soundboard 30 years later, I've changed my mind. This was a really good show. Sure its not a real jamming show although Deal rips pretty hard and Jer noodles around for a few minutes in Foolish Heart. But everything is well-played to my ears. Yeah, there's some flubs and forgotten lyrics (you try remembering all the lyrics and notes to 20 tunes while you're high as a kite!) but overall its real tight.

Nassau was always charmed. I enjoyed the hell out this whole tour and this show was no exception. Coming out of the sunny south Cold Rain and Snow in the North always worked for me. Though I enjoyed shows after Brent passed 1990 was the last peak and I very much missed him and the energy he and Jerry shared. As they did on this night. Rest with the angels Jerry & Brent I wonder who else is jamming with them on the other side.

Was at this show and remember Jerry really jamming Deal. Other One was amazing. Brent Mydland at his best all night.

Not F Everyone...
Brent really shines in this one. A great Pocky Way & a great Good Lovin'.
I agree w/ Captain Trip. I think Brent had meant to say that Miss Fanny had allowed him " for fuckin' everyone", but I think he missed the end syllable. I'm commenting here w/ the others, but recommend grabbing the Charlie Miller version.
I also like the LLR thunder end effect too. Wish I heard this more.

Nothing @ the Knick 1990 was a "Throw-away!!"
Yikes!! Grubic, reviews like yours confirm my opinion that some Heads saw TOO MANY shows in their day...did you forget there was a lot full of Heads with their finger still in the air just wishin' they could be in that arena swaying to the opening notes of Cold, Rain, and Snow....Tickets for these late era shows--Spring 1990, especially, after Fall 89', were so sought after and unavailable for so many---your attitude is a crime and insult to all those folks who were left out of those shows while you were inside waiting for the Band to magically meet YOUR expectations night after night!! Sorry to rant, but geez!

i too have had this show on tape for a long time. my copy is a grate aud, and the crowd is goin insane, especially during "the weight" .
the Foolish heart is top notch, The Weight is incredible,might be the best Pocky way, but the Other One is one of my leasts faves.
as far as Rain n Snow being a throw away tune, thats blasphemy. A hard driving-2 chord ditty that comes with some good warm up backing vocals and a simple melodic solo is a grate way for any band to open, especially the Dead. besides the crowd seems to agree with me on my aud copy.

I've got a confession to make. Cold Rain became a throw away tune (in my opinion) by 90. And back during that spring tour, I wasn't too fond of Brent tunes. AND I was getting to the point of considering Bobby a male Donna (how many throwing stones can one listen to, let alone play?!) -- So y'all can understand my feelings after the "Easy to luv you".
And THEN the High Time started bringing me back -- Jerr/ Bill and Micky --- (not so much phil this night) --- QJane rolls in for a stop...and THEN the show picks up a couple steps -- LUCY thru Bobby into the DEAL...and we're off...2nd set IS the keeper...although I was definitely thrown off by the weight on this night - think it was a wednesday or tuesnite...definitely mid week show - up from DC.
-- We're all getting older, and if I had only known then that that tour thru summer was the last of brent...god bless. We are smarter when we're older - but more fun when we were young...It is how it is...
RIP, Mydland! And god bless the G*d D@mn Grateful Dead!

weight is great!
I can't tell you how many times I've blared this one driving down the road. Just hearing Jer sing his part in this one sends shivers and the energy in the building after he is done singing the chorus is what many of us live for. As far as "fuck everyone," don't you kinda agree somtimes?

Hey Pocky Way
I always loved this song, and here it is ON FIRE a smoldering version to burn your feet on!!!! The Cumberland is great, WHOLE SHOW, just play it loud!!!!! Can't stop dancing, Hey Hey Hey, Hey Pocky Way!!!
June 3, 2006 Subject:
Worth its Weight?
umm... shouldn't we have just wished that this song was never played in the first place? I get that it hops with Brent, but just think of the endless Vince versions that kept so many promising Encores from happening. Especially bitter taste when it was played as Brent's last song! God bless that crazy Nordic biker from Milwaukee...And God bless Vince, the fourth of six GD keyboardists to join Jerry.
Well, this night and the next night are just fabulous! This is top notch spring 1990 dead. Solid setlist and the playing is magnificent! Get it now while you can!!!!

I Can Show You A High Time
Well you know...1st in 2 years: High Time...How come I can't give this 6 stars?
September 16, 2005 Subject:
15 Years or so
Since I heard this... This was a scorcher and is hot on it's own - forget about the other Branford shows. Great sound quality and just the right amount of audience.

Don't miss for Branford
Branford a few nights later is awesome, but this show should not be missed. Check out the set list for 2nd set. Very interesting. Nice placement for Pocky Way, Weight and last Revolution. Nice show and definetly worhty of the download.

LAst Great Tour
This was the last great tour of the best band ever. I think this really was it, after Brent went they were never the same.
This is an overlooked gem of a show.
I've heard a matrix or fm of this show and the crowd reaction to the weight is killer.
This is a 5 star show from the last great tour. Every bit as good as the Branford show.
April 18, 2005 Subject:
I was pretty lucky in my 50 shows - I got to see the final performances of "Handjive," "Dancin in the Streets," the first "Weight" (the crowd reaction is insanity), the final "Ballad of a Thin Man," the first "Louie Louie" in 20 years, the first second set "Let it Grow" in 14 years, the first first set "Eyes" in 16 years, the first "Dark Star Jam" in 17 years, and the final "Revolution" from this show.
The Dead never did Beatles songs very well, and letting Vince sing "Tomorrow Never Knows" and The Who's "Baba O'Reilly" is laughable (and terrible).
This show was very good, well played and I got to see my first "Loose Lucy" and "Easy to Love You" - what more could I have asked for from the dreaded Nassau Colisseum (except maybe the Branford show the next night). But I made up for that in '91 in a BIG way.

this show is hot and unfortunately is overlooked by the classic with marsalis nights later. Love the second set. anything with hey pocky way gets my vote. Obviously download the legendary night, then come back here. You won't be disappointed.

well played...pre-drums is a highlight.Foolish kicks ass.
March 18, 2005 Subject:
What a great tour. This show somtimes get over looked. The Vocals at the end of Deal are sick I never heard them do that before or after. Second set is sublime. *Has anyone else noticed that Brent says Fuck Everyone on the final verse of THE WEIGHT. It's much clearer if your wearing headphones. *Brent also uses profanity at all three nights of the Shoreline 90' Run
March 13, 2005 Subject:
Yes, I hear it. Wonder if he ment to say "for fuckin' everyone" and for the last part of fuckin' he leaned back and the mic didnt catch it. OR he just wanted to say "Fuck Everyone."
March 5, 2005 Subject:
Budfox, do you mean during the final verse where they're singing "who sent me here with her regards for (<--Brent: "fuck") everyone"?
That's a bit of a stretch, but I may just be looking for my headphones sometime soon.
I don't think there's a matrix or 24-track SBD source from this tour or fall '89 that I would rate less than a 5, hence my rating. Well, let me finish 10-18-89 and maybe that will change my mind, given the number of negative things said in reviews of that DL.

Long time...first time and last time
High Time hadn't been played in about 15 months.
The Weight- first performance ever.
Revolution- last time played.

best show of the 90,s
nothing else needs to be said.Was recorded for w/out a net,LLR made the cut.The whole set should have made the cut.Mixed to 24 tracks..sounds nice and warm/Foolish is of the charts!The weight break out!Just download!!

Easy To Love You Backstage Pass
Is this the one?? It kinda sounds like it, but I am not entirely sure. Maybe not.
Anyhoo, this is a hidden gem of 1990. The Brandford shows have all the street cred, but this is a dandy.
Killer first set. Love the High Time. Garcia went right for it head first.
Good recording, some hiss.
Was Spring '90 something else or what??
October 28, 2004 Subject:
damn fine show
this show is hot on so many levels.the second set alone is worth downloading this gem.we miss you brent
